The Devil

Poem #10 from my playlist ‘A Shropshire Grad’.

But when I came to write it, I found myself exploring whether he could really be called ‘the devil’.

Poem #4 from my collection ‘A Shropshire Grad’. Originally written as a competition entry for Teacher Appreciation Week, I found the personal reflections included were too raw to throw away forever after being overlooked in the contest.
